China has less casual dating than America, and this has a lot to do with China’s conservative history.
Naked marriages, known as 裸婚 (luǒ hūn) in Chinese, are when a couple gets married despite not owning a car or house.
Of course flirting is still present in both cultures.
But, if there is dating before college then it is usually kept as a secret from parents.
The cultural differences are the main reasons for the divide between dating styles of Americans and Chinese.
Hopefully this has given you a better idea of the differences of dating a Chinese person versus an American person.
